How do you feel about people that review anime and manga on YouTube?


I don't mind people do review anime & Manga on YT. But, I'm not sure if there's any good reviewers out there (anime's big 3 & anime community knows what I'm talking about).

I watch GRArkada for the serious, professional nature of his reviews, Demolition D+ because he's hilarious, and Gigguk because he's a cross between the two.

I watch the ones I watch mainly for entertainment rather than information. Nonetheless as GRArkada is a reviewing machine, he does introduce me to anime that I've never heard of and I judge whever or not to watch based on what he mentions the anime contains rather than if it's good or not - as the only review of his I agreed with is his review of gosick. They're all nonetheless entertaining even if I never agree with reviews.

I typically avoid reviews. Especially anime reviews.

Few people can be entertaining in their methods of reviewing things. Also there's too much rabid fandom and little critical analysis. (vote inflation, because anime fans typically just vote anime really highly, fans that stick to only one genre, people who review take one of two approaches: is it super entertaining, or is it just loaded with easter eggs, footnotes, etc. (and the one sided reviewing may downvote something that has a lot of nuance as boring or it might downgrade something of high entertainment as being mindless.))

Just my 2 cents.

i generally ignore all critics/reviewers. whether they are movie critics or anime critics for one simple reason. i generally love the stuff the critics hate and hate stuff critics love.

I like GRArkada, because he seems to really think and analyze what he's reviewing. Gigguk, because he tells good jokes, but says what's good and bad about the anime. I also love the way 42's Anime Reviews does it, because her personality shines through and makes it enjoyable. I also have recent subscribed to GLENLOVESUBWAY and Goat Jesus, because collabs are fun XD

I stay away from reviews usually especially on My Anime List simply because people are two picky and cant enjoy an anime for what it is.

I like the otaku ones who can look at awesome anime like SAO from a purely otaku point of view and thus give it really high ratings (And animes with fanservice, tsundere characters, etc., basically otaku reviewers who like what your average hardcore otaku likes), so I don´t have to look at reviews by annoying SJW and the like who take all kinds of boring outside ideas and criticism into their reviews. Hardcore otaku like me and my friends are never going to give a crap about that shit anyway, no matter how much they rage about it, inside or outside of tumblr. X-D If I enjoy a show, I have the right to like, enjoy, and fanboy about it, and if you don't fine, but don't bother me with it . XD

Also the primary reason I don't really do reviews anymore, also for video games. Except steam reviews lol, those are usually indicative of what normal, hardcore gamers think and like care about instead of internet journalists on a moral high ground. XD So those do heavily influence my purchasing decisions during and outside of sales. Whereas reviews by sites like gamespot and kotaku these days don´t influence me at all, unless they're complaining about technical issues. XD

You should watch DraconisMarch`s anime reviews,. all his reviews were completely accurate and funny.


maybe except for when he reviews Log Horizon and spent the entire video bashing it and calling it an SAO rip off even though the ONLY similarity between the two is the idea of being trapped in a video game which SAO wasn't even the first to do that. So it's a stupid claim made by idiots who don't know what they are talking about and if he's that type of person I'm not very interested in his other reviews either which are likely just as missinformed and biased.

if you like him then that's good for you but I just can't trust his opinion after that video.

It bores me. If I want to know about the anime, I'll fucking watch it or read the synopsis. Who the fuck has time to waste 10 minutes on someone talking about their own opinion about an anime when mine might be completely different if I were to watch it?

I usually don't watch them, if I have a question about a show I go and ask a friend or find out my self by watching it.

I like to watch an anime and watch a review to hear what others thought about it and have a discussion since I don't have many friends who watch the same animes as I do or watch as much. I usually listen to Forneverworld, Sawyer7mage, and King of Lightning but I find other reviewers who review anime they don't.

I don't see why people can't judge for themselves.
